HARD ROAD

TURN AROUND

LONG BEACH ARENA 71

PURPLE FOR A DAY


Title:           Hard Road

Type:          Bootleg/1LP

Cat No:       DP 536

Origin:         USA

Source:       Radio broadcast

Track list:

Side 1:

Speed King/Wring That Neck

Side 2:

Mandrake Root

Notes:     Good pressing of a well recorded show. The sleeve is one of those "bit of paper shrink wrapped to sleeve" jobs.Taken from a KUSE USA college radio performance, the original has never turned up-sadly, as there are two different tapes doing the rounds, both are well mixed and would probably make up a full `71 era show..........There are a number of sleeve and pressing variations for this old vinyl title-The DPAS discography lists a further three!


Title:           Turn Around

Type:          Bootleg/1CD

Cat No:       GYPSY EYE 010

Origin:         Japan

Source:       Radio broadcast

Track list:

Disc 1:

Speed King/Strange Kind Of Woman/Child In Time/Mandrake Root

Notes:     From a brighter, better quality tape than I have, and the packaging is nicely done. The tape sounds mangled at the start of Mandrake Root (unlike on my copy of the tape), and never really recovers. Sleeve lists date as 30 August 71, this is wrong.

Wierd one, takes its title (and the Long Beach  tracks) from a vinyl LP of the same name-I don't have it (or the vinyl).
